Golder announced it will be acquiring Pastor, Behling & Wheeler, LLC (PBW), a Texas-based environmental engineering and consulting firm.
Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Round Rock, Texas, with five offices throughout the state, PBW provides a broad range of specialized environmental engineering and consulting services for clients in Texas and throughout the U.S.
“This acquisition is aligned with our strategy to expand our geographic footprint and resources in key markets in the U.S. and is highly complementary to our existing resources in Texas,” said Dr. Hisham Mahmoud, Golder’s global president & CEO in a company release. “We have enjoyed a successful teaming and collaborative relationship working with PBW’s leadership and people over the years, making PBW a natural fit.”
“We have had the privilege of working with Golder on projects over the years and, through those projects, our teams have built a strong relationship based on mutual respect, a commitment to excellence, and alignment of cultures,” said Eric Pastor, president of PBW, in the release.
PBW’s core services include site investigation, remediation, and closure; environmental compliance and permitting support; and environmental engineering design.
The acquisition is expected to close by the end of May.
